A complex and layered palate and features a delicate lemon, pear and lime fruit spectrum at the forefront. Tight and focused, woven together by a pristine natural acid line. Mealy notes, gunflint and subtleties of nougat, fragrant jasmine and sweet spice provide breadth to an elegant nose. Delicately textured with vibrant grapefruit and freshly cut lime, width and complexity enhanced by fluffy nougat notes. A classical wine frm an outstanding vintage.
"The warmth of '11 in Margaret River has given birth to a Prelude of considerable volume and strength. Concentrated lemon, grapefruit and white peach draw out long and tight on a finish of finely structured acidity. In spite of its proportions, it finds an impressive harmony in its fruit presence and acid poise."
Australian Wine Companion
"Fresh and lively, with vibrant acidity to balance the ripe pear and floral flavors, hinting at clotted cream as the finish lingers."
"Light yellow. Nectarine, honey and white flowers on the pungent nose. Broad and fleshy but dry, with focused orchard and pit fruit flavors and complicating notes of anise and mace. Packs a solid punch but shows very good structure, finishing spicy and long, with a lingering note of dried fig. Nicely balanced, with no excess fat."

Citrus flavors shine, but unbalanced, leaning on acidic. fresh and vibrant and slightly creamy. I would give a 3.5 if possible.
